Types of Paralysis

The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation found that nearly 1.7% of Americans live with some type of paralysis. There are several types and degrees of paralysis, including;

  • Complete paralysis, where you have no control over your muscles.
  • Partial, or paresis, where you have some control.
  • Temporary paralysis means some or all of the muscle control comes back.
  • Permanent paralysis.
  • Flaccid, where the muscles shrink and become flabby.
  • Spastic paralysis where the muscles become hard and jerk in a spasm.

Paralysis can affect a part of the body. Localized paralysis is usually a small area limited to the face, hands, feet, or even vocal cords. A more generalized paralysis is a wide area and is broken down to the percentage of the body affected.

Causes of Paralysis

Several factors can contribute to paralysis. The most common of which are;

Motor vehicle accidents fall, sports accidents, acts of violence, surgery errors, failure to diagnose and treat medical conditions, and unnecessary force during labor and delivery can result in paralysis. If you or someone you know has been paralyzed due to medical malpractice or negligent accident, seek our knowledgeable Dallas paralysis attorneys today.

Complications from Paralysis

Paralysis is the loss of control over muscles. This can be due to nerve cell damage or to the muscle itself. As a result, many bodily functions can suffer complications.

  • Blood clots
  • Skin injuries and pressure sores, bedsores
  • Changes to the joints, bones, and muscles
  • Breathing, heart rate, and blood flow can be affected
  • Behavior and mood changes
  • Difficulty speaking or swallowing
  • Loss of urine and bowel control
  • Changes in the function of organs, glands, and other tissues

There is no cure for paralysis, but physical and occupational therapy can improve the quality of life for some individuals. The effects of paralysis are life-altering, limiting independence, and quality of life.
